The pose was a familiar one for Jim Furyk - buckled over as if he'd taken a punch in the gut, barely able to watch the flight of the ball.
The ending felt achingly similar, too.
Denied in another major championship.
Furyk came up two shots shy of Jason Dufner in the PGA Championship, unable to mount any sort of charge coming down the stretch on a warm, sunny Sunday at Oak Hill.
Dufner seized control just before the turn. His playing partner in the final group never punched back, the agony apparent in his mannerisms as all hope slipped away on the last two holes.

This was the second time in a...

He imploded at last year's U.S. Open, threw up on himself at the final hole of the Bridgestone Invitational a month later and then, of course, there was the Ryder Cup debacle at Medinah.
This year he missed the cut at both the U.S. and British Opens.
He's bloodied, but like Jake LaMotta in "Raging Bull...
